They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

Just 140 Gazans permitted accross Rafah border

As the death toll in Gaza passes 1,400, Egyptian hospitals have treated more than a hundred casualties of an Israeli military campaign drawing an otherwise muted response from Egypt, as its political establishment weighs humanitarian responsibilities against domestic politics.
Egypt's Rafah border crossing – Gaza's only exit route not controlled by Israel – has opened sporadically since Israel began Operation Protective Edge on 8 July. According to Egypt's health ministry, 140 people have entered the country for treatment since then. Link
